Eminem’s Controversial MJ Outfit Hits the Auction Block
Eminem stans take note. Earlier today (July 27), several of the rapper’s signature items went up for bid online as part of The Rock and Roll Pop Art Auction.
Among the pricey digs is a blood splattered white suit jacket made by Lucelli that Em wore at the photo shoot for his 2004 album Encore. Also hitting the auction block for a minimum bid of $1,000 is one of the rap superstar’s black Nike Air sweatsuits.
The most interesting and expensive item up for sale is the Michael Jackson outfit Em sported in his controversial 2004 video for “Just Lose It.” The Detroit MC caught a lot of flack for poking fun of Jackson in the clip, with the King of Pop himself even calling into the Steve Harvey radio show to voice his displeasure with the spoof, calling it “outrageous and disrespectful.” BET eventually banned the video from the network. The minimum bid on the getup–which includes a red sequined jacket and white glove, as well as a black hat, pants and shoes–is $6,000.
Legendary hip-hop group Run-D.M.C. also have an item up for sale. Bids on their “Raising Hell” T-shirt start at $25.
The Auction starts today and will run through August 5 on gottahaverockandroll.com. –Max G
